Account Options Sign in. Top Charts. New Arrivals. Win at work. See more. Simon Sinek. Imagine a world where almost everyone wakes up inspired to go to work, feels trusted and valued during the day, then returns home feeling fulfilled. This is not a crazy, idealized notion. Today, in many successful organizations, great leaders create environments in which people naturally work together to do remarkable things.
In his work with organizations around the world, Simon Sinek noticed that some teams trust each other so deeply that they would literally put their lives on the line for each other. Other teams, no matter what incentives are offered, are doomed to infighting, fragmentation and failure. The answer became clear during a conversation with a Marine Corps general. Sinek watched as the most junior Marines ate first while the most senior Marines took their place at the back of the line.
What's symbolic in the chow hall is deadly serious on the battlefield: Great leaders sacrifice their own comfort--even their own survival--for the good of those in their care. Too many workplaces are driven by cynicism, paranoia, and self-interest. But the best ones foster trust and cooperation because their leaders build what Sinek calls a "Circle of Safety" that separates the security inside the team from the challenges outside. Sinek illustrates his ideas with fascinating true stories that range from the military to big business, from government to investment banking.

40 Books Every Man Over 40 Should Have on His Bookshelf | Best Life
There is a beauty to Pat's writing that defies description. The Handmaid's Tale. Margaret Atwood. Set in the near future, it describes life in what was once the United States and is now called the Republic of Gilead, a monotheocracy that has reacted to social unrest and a sharply declining birthrate by reverting to, and going beyond, the repressive intolerance of the original Puritans. The regime takes the Book of Genesis absolutely at its word, with bizarre consequences for the women and men in its population.
The story is told through the eyes of Offred, one of the unfortunate Handmaids under the new social order. It is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and a tour de force. It is Margaret Atwood at her best. The Stand. Stephen King. Those who remain are scared, bewildered, and in need of a leader. As the dark man and the peaceful woman gather power, the survivors will have to choose between them—and ultimately decide the fate of all humanity. In the aftermath, his widow, Jane Hawk, does what all her grief, fear, and fury demand: find the truth, no matter what.
People of talent and accomplishment, people admired and happy and sound of mind, have been committing suicide in surprising numbers. When Jane seeks to learn why, she becomes the most-wanted fugitive in America. Her powerful enemies are protecting a secret so important—so terrifying—that they will exterminate anyone in their way.
But all their power and viciousness may not be enough to stop a woman as clever as they are cold-blooded, as relentless as they are ruthless—and who is driven by a righteous rage they can never comprehend. Because it is born of love. The paranoia and mystery increase as the story unfolds. Koontz has created [a] wonderful character in Jane Hawk. Koontz rocks it again. Koontz is practically Shakespeare. The Silent Corner brims with both action and emotion. As relevant to current events as it is audacious. The book is full of neat touches. And the prose, as always in a Koontz novel, is first-rate.
Catch 50th Anniversary Edition. Joseph Heller. Fifty years after its original publication, Catch remains a cornerstone of American literature and one of the funniest—and most celebrated—books of all time. Set in Italy during World War II, this is the story of the incomparable, malingering bombardier, Yossarian, a hero who is furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. But his real problem is not the enemy—it is his own army, which keeps increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service.
Here, at last, is the definitive edition of a classic of world literature. The Burning Bridge: Book Two. The international bestselling series with over 5 million copies sold in the U. Love means to commit oneself without guarantee, to give oneself completely in the hope that our love will produce love in the loved person. Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is also of little love. For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul. If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours.
But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own. Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for.
You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly. Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.
Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear. A soulmate is the one person whose love is powerful enough to motivate you to meet your soul, to do the emotional work of self-discovery, of awakening. Our soul…tries to direct us to individuals who share our purpose in life, complement our strengths, and supplement our weaknesses. But there is no guarantee that these ideal mates are going to look the way we expect, or be of our own background.
Our soulmates seldom appeal to our personality—our ego. Talk about meeting your soul mate … I truly feel I have been given that gift. A soulmate is someone to whom we feel profoundly connected, as though the communicating and communing that take place between us were not the product of intentional efforts, but rather a divine grace. Friends will keep you sane, Love could fill your heart, A lover can warm your bed, But lonely is the soul without a mate. A soul mate is…someone whose way of viewing life is not necessarily the same as yours but complements yours, so that there is not a compromise, there is a complement.
If you want to attract a life partner as your soul mate, there are several illusions you will need to relinquish. One is that your soul mate is someone you will be with for the rest of your life. You can have a soul mate relationship that lasts a few weeks, months, or years. Time has nothing to do with the quality of your connection and its importance in your life. Most people have more than one soul mate. You may already be in several soul mate relationships with friends and loved ones.
A soul mate can come in the form of a life partner, treasured friend, child, or lover. A soul mate can be someone with whom you share a spiritual path, a joint work in the world, or a commitment to be parents to certain souls. It can be someone whose growth you are sponsoring, such as a child. The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind I was. There is only one happiness in life — to love and to be loved. Loving can cost a lot but not loving always costs more, and those who fear to love often find want of love is an emptiness that robs the joy from life.
Rather than being about excitement and lust, a soul mate relationship is characterized by such things as a shared life path, a sense of comfort and ease, and a genuine liking of each other. He felt now that he was not simply close to her, but that he did not know where he ended and she began. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing, it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it.
It is a sort of Divine accident.

There can be only two questions that are asked with regard to human relationships: Where am I going? Who is going with me? Do not invert the order of the questions. Is that clear? Of course not. You prepare. And that is what we should do for love. Distance makes the heart grow fonder, and familiarity breeds contempt.
